SB Stokes' first book of poetry, A History of Broken Love Things, was published by Punk Hostage Press in January 2014.

A new chapbook of SB's poems, DARK ENTRIES, was also published in October 2014 by Gorilla Press and The Pedestrian Press.

He holds an M. F.A. in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University and is both the former poetry and art editor for Fourteen Hills: The SFSU Review.

His poems can be found in print and online in/at Oakland Review, Red Light Lit, Writing Without Walls, The Bicycle Review, ElevenEleven, Luciferous, Red Fez, Bare Hands, Bong Is Bard, SEX + DESIGN, Gesture, Metonym, sPARKLE & bLINK, MUST street 'zine, and many other quality publications.


There is ample street parking, but just to make it easy, there is an O'Reilly Auto Parts/Walgreens on the corner of Fruitvale and Foothill with a huge parking lot. Here's a Google Map link:'Reilly+Auto+Parts/@37.789393,-122.233008,14z/data=!4m5!1m2!2m1!1so+reilly+auto+parts+near+Foothill+Blvd,+Oakland,+CA!3m1!1s0x0000000000000000:0xa74c9fbc2152bd68

Nomadic Press should show up on that map as well. We are just in between Austin and Rutherford on Foothill.

Hope to see you soon!
